Kira is in 4th grade at Brandywine Springs Elementary School, where she loves her art class. The art teacher there chose a few outstanding works of art by students to be displayed at a show at the Delaware Art Museum on March 22, 2012. Her clay masterpiece is entitled “Smile,” and the show was a smashing success! Way to go Kira!
Jennifer Manski is a student at Penn State University, and she and her family have been patients with Wahl Family Dentistry since she was a little girl. She recently went with her school to Ghana in Afriica to do some missionary work.
She asked us to donate some toothbrushes, which she showed the children there how to use. You can see that they really enjoyed the toothbrushes and also Jennifer! Thanks Jennifer!
Today’s New York Times has a story about the rise in preschool cavities that is very interesting. It confirms the importance of good oral hygiene in children. If children are too young to brush properly, then parents should supervise and/or brush their children’s teeth at least two times per day, especially before bed. Also, children should never be put to bed with a bottle unless it has plain water in it. Anything else (juice, milk, etc.) can cause rampant “baby bottle caries.” See the full story here.
